Covey Run Cabernet Sauvignon Washington 2005

Member Review by 22415brewery:

A great value at under $10, this Cab does not overwhelm nor does it overly impress. Besides the obvious berry and bing cherry nose upfront, I find a slight hint of milk chocolate which is pleasing to the palate in this medium bodied cab. This Cab has aged well (late 2009) in the bottle in comparison to the prior taste which I experienced in late 2008, the spice has definitely mellowed and overall it has become a smoother drinking RTW and quite a bargain. Then again, 2005-2008 were just incredible years for CV Reds. This example is no exception to the rule.

Named for the coveys of quail that patrol our prized vineyards in the Columbia Valley, Covey Run specializes in crafting award-winning Washington State wines. In fact, Covey Run wines have been awarded 20 “Best Value” awards by Wine Spectator, the world’s leading wine magazine. For 25 years, Covey Run wines have provided a perfect introduction to the vivid, delicious flavors of Washington State. Since 1982, Covey Run has crafted a broad range of award-winning wines – including 20 “Best Value” awards from Wine Spectator magazine – from prized vineyards in the renowned Columbia and Yakima Valley appellations of Eastern Washington State. Sheltered from storms by the rainshadow effect exerted by the majestic Cascade Mountain Range, conditions in these high desert regions are ideal for cultivating world-class wine grapes. Warm, sunny days and extended sunlight hours (due to Washington’s northern latitude) develop intense flavors in our classic European grape varieties, while cool nights ensure they retain high levels of acidity. Covey Run winemaker Kate Michaud transforms this pristine fruit into a broad range of consistently superior wines that embody Washington State’s unique characteristics while meeting and surpassing international standards of excellence. Kate crafts two tiers of outstanding Covey Run varietals: Quail Series and Columbia Valley Reserve. Quail Series provides discerning wine drinkers with high-quality Washington State wines for everyday enjoyment. They’re varietally distinctive, fruit-forward, easy-drinking and ideal for casual meals. Columbia Valley Reserve wines are hand-crafted from our finest lots of grapes and showcase lush, vivid fruit flavors balanced by bright natural acidity, with oak accenting rather than dominating the palate. They beautifully accompany a broad range of contemporary cuisines and are perfect for special-occasion dinners and other celebrations. The breadth of selection represented by our Quail Series and Columbia Valley Reserve varietals means there’s a delicious Covey Run wine for every occasion, from stylish entertaining to casual gatherings with family and friends. With great vineyards, a talented winemaker and a bevy of vividly flavored, beautifully structured wines, Covey Run truly offers the best of Washington State. Read less

I bought this wine to help in my effort to taste my way through the Northwest wine scene. I found it to be a rich wine, with a sweet but deep scent on the nose. On the tongue, it's very big on the berries and spice. Not bad. I'd certainly purchase again.

    Wow, I can't believe that there are even decent reviews for this wine. It tastes like green crabapples to me. SUPER sour, and not at all drinkable.
